Access Social Security’s Educator Tool Kit

August 9, 2018 • By

woman writing on tableWith so many students gone for the summer, teachers may now have time to prepare a different kind of lesson plan. Help students prepare a better future for themselves with practical knowledge about financial planning. There’s no better time to let young people know that the younger they start saving, the easier it will be to reach their goals.

Let us introduce you to the Social Security Educator Toolkit. This is a rich resource for teachers and advocates. Our Information for Educators page contains a toolkit with information and resources to educate and engage students on Social Security. It includes:

  • Two lesson plans with objectives;
  • Infographics and handouts for each lesson plan;
  • Links to Social Security webpages;
  • Talking points; and
  • Quiz questions and answers.

It’s important for students to understand why Social Security was created and why it is essential to their lives today and in the future. This knowledge and understanding will provide students a strong base on which to build their financial future.

You can access the webpage and toolkit today.

Young workers can also see how Social Security directly relates to them at our students website.

Getting young people excited about saving can be a somewhat abstract subject. Let them know their dreams can be achieved with thoughtful planning and a bit of discipline. Social Security is securing today and tomorrow with your help and the help of today’s educated youth.

We’re also always here for you if you need information about programs and benefits. Visit us anytime.

      Hi Martha, if you’re referring to the Cost-of-Living Adjustment (COLA) for 2019, we will know that information in late October, when the increase in the Consumer Price Index as determined by the Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics is announced. As always, we will keep you informed. Thanks!

    Hello,
    Can a SSD beneficiary work, and if so what is the income limit?

      Hi, Karina. Special rules allow you to work temporarily without losing your monthly Social Security disability benefits. After your nine-month trial work period, we still provide a safety net that allows you to work another three years risk free. During those three years, you can work and still receive benefits for any month in which your earnings do not exceed a certain limit. For 2019, those limits are: $2,040 for blind individuals; or $1,220 a month if you are not blind. For more information on working while receiving Social Security disability benefits, click here. You can report your earnings using your personal my Social Security account. Whether you are receiving Social Security or SSI, you may be able to work. Learn more information by reading our publication, “Working while Disabled- How We Can Help.” Thanks!
